Review Ratchet and Clank 2016

Released on April 12th, 2016, Ratchet and Clank(2016) is a re-imagining of the original Ratchet and Clank game. The game begins with two prisoners having a conversation. Apparently one of the prisoners has a game based on his last adventure coming out soon. Qwark being eager for attention agrees to tell Shiv Helix his side of things. We are then introduced to Ratchet, a young Lombax on Veldin. Chairman Drek, Dr. Nefarious, Victor Von Ion, and Clank. Clank is viewed as a defective model and Drek sends Victor after him for termination. Meanwhile Ratchet goes and makes an attempt at joining the Galactic Rangers, since it is his dream to join them. Unfortunately Ratchet’s criminal past causes Captain Qwark to reject his application outright. Ratchet rescues Clank and offers to take Clank to the Ranger Headquarters on Kerwan. They get shot down on the way, but with help from a plumber they manage to make it to Kerwan. Upon arriving there they discover the invasion has already started. With help from Big Al, Ratchet and Clank manage to thwart Drek’s plans. As a result of their assistance Qwark reluctantly allows them to join the Rangers as well as giving them a new ship to help with being a Ranger. After a few missions we find out Drek and Nefarious plan to use a Deplanetizer to destroy several planets and use the remains to create an artificial planet. Too this end we see the destruction of Novalis as well as the betrayal of Qwark. Weeks later we learn that Nefarious plans to destroy Umbris, whose destruction would destroy countless other worlds due to a rare celestial event. Ratchet and Clank then proceed to stop Nefarious’ various plans and manage to destroy the Deplanetizer saving the galaxy, as well as arresting Captain Qwark for his betrayal of the Rangers. This game while fun to play is not one I would recommend unless you are a fan of platform shooters as it’s not a game for everyone. Otherwise it’s a fantastic game and lots of fun to play.
